A conservatory should be your favourite room in the house with the potential to be anything you want it to be. However, so many conservatories fall into disuse due to the issues surrounding the polycarbonate roof that the majority come with.
Too hot in summer – too cold in winter?
The most common problem associated with a conservatory roof is its lack of efficiency. Conservatories can end up being too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter. The polycarbonate roof is often the cause of this as it is not the best insulator when you want to keep the warmth in your home.
Replacing your conservatory roof with a glass roof would improve the efficiency as it is better insulated. Modern glass is treated with a solar control coating which will reduce the glare from the sun and prevent the room from overheating.
A solid insulated roof is even better insulated still and does a great job of keeping the conservatory cool throughout summer and toasty in the winter.
Is the rain too loud?
Another issue that conservatory owners raise is that the sound of rain on the roof can be too loud to enjoy any activity in the room. This is due to the material of the roof as there is no insulation to take the impact of the rain drops.
A glass roof offers 50% better sound insulation which is hugely noticeable in your conservatory. The solid insulated roof (warm roof) offers even greater soundproofing qualities which give you the option to sit and watch T.V so you can really make the most out of your conservatory.
Too high maintenance?
The roof of a conservatory is subject to all the elements throughout the year and it takes the brunt of all the different issues that the changing seasons bring. Therefore, your conservatory roof must be made from the very best materials otherwise it will need constant maintenance and will eventually fall into a state where it needs to be repaired.
A polycarbonate roof is difficult to keep clean as it gathers so much grime and is difficult to get to. Our glass roofs from Warmseal are self-cleaning which means they require a lot less maintenance.
The warm roof option also requires less maintenance as can be kept in perfect condition by power-washing every now and then to keep it in top shape.
Replacing your roof will not only make your conservatory look better and function better it will also add value to your home as a whole.
No matter what type of conservatory roof your conservatory has Warmseal will be able to offer you a replacement that will help confirm this as your favourite room in the house.
